Echino Bee Noodlehead Divided Basket

This basket has been on my to-make list for a long time and when I saw Svetlana's version the other day, I bumped it up to the top.

Pretty much the reason that I had put off making this project is because I hate interfacing (this project calls for SF101 and fusible fleece), but in the end the interfacing was minimally obnoxious and definitely makes a big difference in the finished project.  

The entire process of making this was so fast!  When I got to the last step I thought to myself, "Wait, that's it?".  My topstitching is a little sloppy around the top because I got a little lazy about the ironing, but it's nothing I can't live with.  

This will definitely be my go to baby shower gift in the future.  I already put this blanket and some newborn diapers in my basket to test it out.  These diapers are leftover from when my son was a baby (almost 5 years ago!) and he outgrew the newborn size in about 2 days. Diapers don't expire, do they?

The exterior pieces were made with Architextures in brown (available here, here, or here), the pocket is made with an Echino print, and the interior is Kona coral (one of my all time favorite solid colors). I am going to make at least one more of these for myself and I have 3 friends having baby girls in May so expect to see a few more of these :)

  1. your basket is so pretty Erica. I too was so surprised at how quickly the basket comes together once the interfacing is attached.

  4. So adorable? I just bought this pattern not quite a month ago, but it looks hard? Can I ask you how long did it take you and was it pretty hard? This would be perfect for my sister and another shower that i have to go on that same day!

  7. I love that fabric and the basket turned out great! My lovely bee mate made me a gorgeous open wide zipper pouch with that bee fabric! Darling! P.S. I despise interfacing too.
